Great local film
13 December 2001 | by (Honolulu) – See all my reviews

This film is a great example of the way island filming should go - local, with local content, actors, non-stereotypical,it fits all the elements for a great local film. I recommend it for anyone interested in seeing the real Hawaii, without the palm trees and hula girls.
